â€œLuck is the sense to recognize an opportunity and the ability to take advantage of it. The man who can smile at his breaks and grab his chances gets on."- Samuel Goldwyn This time of the year is considered to be nerve-wracking for the students appearing for the board exams. But it seems that it has been all joy and no stress for the students of Deepalaya School, Kalkaji Extension who would be appearing for their first ever CBSE Board Exams this year. After tirelessly struggling for the rights and education of the underprivileged, this School received recognition from the Government of India last year. The students are filled not only with a feeling of anxiousness and excitement, but moreover feel fortunate to get this opportunity and succeed equally among their privileged peers. Sixteen year old Neelam Singh, a student of Deepalaya feels privileged to get this opportunity unlike her seniors. She says that this is a golden opportunity to prove herself in front of her peers. She was the former Head Girl of the School and aims to get the highest marks this year in the boards. Nineteen year old Nahid Hussain has similar views. He feels that in this competitive world, in order to be at par with the peers, we need that equal opportunity as well. He says that he is proud to study at Deepalaya where the main focus is on quality education and moreover overall development of the student. Not just education, he has been the Captain of the Cricket Team and has won the title of Man of the Match in many of the matches. Being ecstatic at the opportunities given to her students, Ms. Anita Sawhney, Principal Deepalaya School, Kalkaji Extension wishes her students luck. She wishes that whatever they do in life, they should try to be the best in that. She says that after receiving recognition from the Government of India, the School has gained a competitive edge and this is an opportunity for the children to be at par with other students. As Robert Bennett rightly said, â€œIt is better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be preparedâ€ and Deepalaya School is well prepared to this opportunity provided.
